Summary

Earth and Trisolaris must face a new threat of an altogether different magnitude: the stunning conclusion of the Three-Body Problem trilogy.

Death's End Summary

Death's End by Cixin Liu

Read the award-winning, critically acclaimed, multi-million-copy-selling science-fiction phenomenon - soon to be a Netflix Original Series from the creators of Game of Thrones.

Half a century after the Doomsday Battle, the uneasy balance of Dark Forest Deterrence keeps the Trisolaran invaders at bay.

Earth enjoys unprecedented prosperity due to the infusion of Trisolaran knowledge and, with human science advancing and the Trisolarans adopting Earth culture, it seems that the two civilizations can co-exist peacefully as equals without the terrible threat of mutually assured annihilation. But peace has made humanity complacent.

Cheng Xin, an aerospace engineer from the 21st century, awakens from hibernation in this new age. She brings knowledge of a long-forgotten program dating from the start of the Trisolar Crisis, and her presence may upset the delicate balance between two worlds. Will humanity reach for the stars or die in its cradle?

Death's End Reviews

'A unique blend of scientific and philosophical speculation, politics and history, conspiracy theory and cosmology' -- George R.R. Martin
'Wildly imaginative, really interesting... The scope of it was immense' -- Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States
'A milestone in Chinese science fiction' * New York Times *
'Cixin Liu is the author of your next favourite sci-fi novel' * Wired *
'China's answer to Arthur C. Clarke' * The New Yorker *
'The Three Body epic concludes with sweep and scope and majesty, worthy of Frederik Pohl or Poul Anderson, Scholar Wu or H.G. Wells. The universe is likely to be a rough neighborhood. See just how rough... and how life might still prevail' -- David Brin
This is a series that I will always have on my book shelves because of the pleasure it gives to revisit it... Credit is also due to the translator, the extraordinary Ken Liu, for creating a read which enables all the high level concepts to weld with the ongoing epic story' * Strange Alliances *
Complex and grandiose... this is a mind-altering and immersive experience' * Daily Mail *
The grand scale continues in this third volume... There are many layers to this story, built up and woven together to form an extraordinarily grand tale of mankind's future. This volume brings the trilogy to a grand and satisfying conclusion' * SFCrowsnest. *
Cixin's trilogy is SF in the grand style, a galaxy-spanning, ideas-rich narrative of invasion and war between humanity and the alien 'Trisolarians' * Guardian. *
'Even what doesn't happen is epic' * London Review of Books *
'The narrative and conceptual momentum of the series takes off at a scale and velocity I couldn't possibly have imagined before reading. The Three-Body trilogy makes insignificance and unknowability and futility seem so spiritually exciting that I felt breathless. I'd join a book club that just discusses it every month for a year' * New York Times *
